I feel exhausted as I sit here and just think about having to re-twist my hair tonight. The upkeep on the two strand twist hairstyle requires a lot of effort in my opinion. As I’ve stated in the past, I tend to twist fairly small sections of hair to get the max curl definition from the curl defining cream. I suppose that the phrase ’small section’ is relative – my definition of a ‘small section’ is about a square inch or less. My arms are tired and too much time has passed after I twist my hair. Untwisting the sections isn’t exactly a day at the beach either.
All I can say to anyone just embarking on the natural hair journey is to be prepared for the extra work associated with maintaining two strand twists. I can certainly see that a flat-ironing session is in my very near future even though I hate to have to apply all that heat to my strands. Oh well, guess that’s where the heat protectant comes in LOL. Flat ironed hair is much easier to maintain than two strand twists in my opinion.
